New Sponsor and Partners for SharpBrains Summit

Back to work after nice mini-break…let’s all have a great 2010, and a fruit­ful decade.

We are proud to announce a new spon­sor and sev­er­al part­ners who are help­ing make the Sharp­Brains Sum­mit a reality.


Arrowsmith_logoThe Arrow­smith Pro­gram is a com­pre­hen­sive suite of cog­ni­tive pro­grams for stu­dents with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties that tar­gets 19 areas of the brain that are most com­mon­ly involved in learn­ing.  It inte­grates two lines of neu­ro­science research, that of Russ­ian neu­ropsy­chol­o­gist, A.R. Luria and the Amer­i­can psy­chol­o­gist, Mark Rosen­zweig, into a method­ol­o­gy with a mul­ti­tude of prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tions for address­ing learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.  The Arrow­smith Pro­gram iden­ti­fies and strength­ens the weak cog­ni­tive areas that affect learn­ing and each stu­dent works on cog­ni­tive pro­grams that are indi­vid­u­al­ly designed for his or her areas of learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ty.  The Arrow­smith Pro­gram was devel­oped at Arrow­smith School in Toron­to where it has been offered since 1979 and is avail­able in pub­lic and pri­vate schools in Cana­da and the U.S.


biiaThe Brain Injury Asso­ci­a­tion of Amer­i­ca (BIAA), found­ed in 1980, is the lead­ing nation­al orga­ni­za­tion serv­ing and rep­re­sent­ing indi­vid­u­als, fam­i­lies and pro­fes­sion­als who are touched by a life-alter­ing, often dev­as­tat­ing, trau­mat­ic brain injury (TBI). Togeth­er with its net­work of more than 40 char­tered state affil­i­ates, as well as hun­dreds of local chap­ters and sup­port groups across the coun­try, the BIAA pro­vides infor­ma­tion, edu­ca­tion and sup­port to assist the 3.17 mil­lion Amer­i­cans cur­rent­ly liv­ing with trau­mat­ic brain injury and their families.

ucsb_yellowThe UC-San­ta Bar­bara Neu­ro­science Research Insti­tute has a mis­sion to pro­mote and facil­i­tate inter­dis­ci­pli­nary neu­ro­science research. Work in the insti­tute inte­grates the tools and strate­gies of mod­ern mol­e­c­u­lar biol­o­gy, genet­ics, cell biol­o­gy, devel­op­men­tal biol­o­gy, biopsy­chol­o­gy, bio­chem­istry, phys­i­ol­o­gy, bio­physics and bioengineering.

aprf_logo1The Alzheimer’s Research and Pre­ven­tion Foun­da­tion (ARPF), estab­lished in 1993, is ded­i­cat­ed to reduc­ing the inci­dence of Alzheimer’s dis­ease by con­duct­ing clin­i­cal research and pro­vid­ing edu­ca­tion­al out­reach. Our mis­sion is to make avail­able infor­ma­tion, from con­ven­tion­al and com­ple­men­tary med­i­cine, that will empow­er peo­ple to build healthy brains.

highres_6913102OLLI @ Berke­ley is one of the 121 Osh­er Life­long Learn­ing Insti­tutes on uni­ver­si­ty and col­lege cam­pus­es in 48 states (plus the Dis­trict of Colum­bia) sup­port­ed by the Bernard Osh­er Foun­da­tion. OLLI @ Berke­ley pro­vides old­er adults an intel­lec­tu­al, cul­tur­al and cre­ative con­nec­tion to Berke­ley as well as a place for Berke­ley’s dis­tin­guished fac­ul­ty and oth­ers to share their research and inter­ests in an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary exchange of ideas.
